The Big visit weekend was incredible for the Bulls, with 5 commits, and several other top prospects…
DE Sager Will be Bulls 18th Commit of '09
"I committed to USF before the Bowl game," said Sager. "USF was the first to offer me and I always knew that was the place for me."
Sager gave his commitment to Coach Canales the week before the MagicJack bowl, and will make it official when he gives his pledge to Coach Leavitt on his official visit on Jan 9th.
Sager is a 6-foot-4, 240 pound DE/DL that has been a familiar face for USF fans. In May the Bulls were the first to offer and in June, Luke was invited to USF's SuperBull which was held at Raymond James Stadium and has been high on the Bulls ever since.
"I met all of the coaches and I talked with Coach Leavitt and some of the players," said Luke. "I liked all of those guys. They have some nice facilities there. I got to work out some with Coach Patrick and that was really good."
Sager has made changes in his list of favorites throughout the recruiting process with N.C. state, Iowa state and USF emerging as his favorites, but the Bulls were always in a strong position.
At one time Sager was on the verge of committing to South Florida, but wanted to take a few visits to make sure he was making the right choice.
"My family is real excited about my choice, They loved everything about the program since the SuperBull. The players the coaches and it's close to home," said Sager. "I know South Florida is the school for me. I just want to be sure about everything."
The Niceville product is rated the No. 137 defensive end in the nation by Scout.com with over 40 tackles and nine sacks. He's being brought in as a defensive end but may be switched to the 3-technicque once on campus.
"I don't mind if they move me to the interior," said Sager. "As long as I get a fair shot at defensive end."
Sager projects as an academic qualifier with a 3.1 GPA and a 19 ACT score and only has one visit left and that will be to Tampa on Jan. 9th.
